Woman posed as a lawyer for a decade

PITTSBURGH -- Authorities say a woman used forged documents to pretend to be a lawyer for a decade and made partner before her fraud was discovered. Kimberly Kitchen, 44, was charged with fooling BMZ Law by forging a law license, bar exam results, an email showing she attended Duquesne University law school. The attorney general says she handled estate planning for more than 30 clients before doubting lawyers in the area raised questions.
